About the hotel

Nestling on the lakeshore of Loch Lein, Killarney’s lower lake, The Lake Hotel, Killarney, enjoys the most magnificent setting with the truly unique backdrop of the mountains, islands, woodlands and the 12th century McCarthy Mor castle ruins. The Lake Hotel is a four star, family run and owned hotel and has been welcoming guests since 1820 so a long tradition of warm Irish hospitality awaits all visitors. Awaken with breakfast in the elegant dining room, the Castlelough Restaurant and observe the wild deer stroll across the lawn, unwind over morning coffee in the Sun Lounge and absorb the peace and tranquillity imposed by the presence of the lakes.

Wander down the ancient pathways to the castle ruins and be surrounded by the freshest of air and a landscape that is untouched by centuries of visitors and admirers. As the light fades and colours change, enjoy an aperitif in the Devil’s Punch Bowl Bar before tasting the finest of Irish food and reflecting on the abundance of natural beauty in this part of the world. Staying at The Lake Hotel is like experiencing history. Since 1820 guests have been coming to stay in the hotel to enjoy its unique vista and although additions have been made over the years, a guest relaxing in the piano lounge today could be sitting in the very same spot as Queen Victoria when she visited the region and stayed at the hotel in 1861. At The Lake Hotel we pride ourselves on offering a truly Irish welcome, a tradition that has been fine-tuned over many years by the hotel owners, the Huggard family. As a family owned and family run hotel, ensuring that all of our guests are comfortable and happy is our business. There is something for everyone staying with us at The Lake Hotel with Killarney town on the doorstep, just 2 km away, the Killarney National Park adjacent to the property, several championship golf courses within a 5 mile radius and wild deer and eagles residing on our grounds. Equally this is the ideal setting for an essential escape from daily life with nothing to distract you from the panoramas outside the hotel windows

Lake Hotel, Lillarney

A wonderful and relaxing place for a short break.

Whilst a little dated in places, the location and views are well worth making the trip for (simply stunning views across the lake from the lake view rooms - which are worth the extra money)!
